ボクシングの世界から(1) ― kayo

今日の単語は、"kayo"です。”カヨ”さん(人の名前)ではありませんよ!?


John Revish - Louisiana welterweight has hit a rough patch after an impressive ESPN debut, in his second pro fight, where Revish twice climbed off the canvas to kayo fellow unbeaten Leonel Lizarraga. I do not have information on his amateur pedigree and know little personal background outside of his studying psychology at LSU.

"kayo"は動詞で、”K.O.”のことです。つまり、"knock out"です。

”カ-ヨ”ではなくて、"kay-o"ということですね。

ちなみに、三人称単数現在形は、"kayos"で、過去形は"kayoed"となります。(現在分詞、もしくは現在進行形は、"kayoing"です。)


Then, there are witnesses who say that Conley not only started his last fight, but spent much of the day guzzling Jack Daniel's and gobbling speed, all the while brawling with a passel of folk, and receiving so many punches from so many assorted fists that police remain openly skeptical about whether they will ever be able to blame his injuries on any one blow, or any one fight. They're not sure what kayoed poor Conley -- a log over the head, a punch, a pratfall, a pill or a wicked combination of any of the above.
(Washington Post. 1991.)
